My Ideal Yacht Tender
I was recently reading the latest issue of Yachting Magazine and while looking at all of the beautiful yachts and their tenders I started to think about the perfect RIB for a yachtsman to have onboard. Large yachts have at least one, if not two tenders onboard, but what they don’t all have is an adventure seeking RIB.
The RIBCRAFT 6.8 would be the ideal model and at 22’7” would work great as a tow-behind or onboard tender. The boat itself would cater to almost any water sport that passengers could think of.
I would first opt for a specially designed console offering convenient storage for water-skis, wakeboards and safety equipment. This particular console also offers two integrated drop-down swim/dive ladders for easy access into or out of the water. The T-top would also have four rocket launchers for those passengers who would like to go fishing. I would also add a pair of telescoping outriggers and a 20 gallon re-circulating livewell.
One option that would make my personalized 6.8 such a great thrill seeking tender is the Brownie’s™ Integrated Air System (BIAS ™). This built in diving system allows passengers to scuba dive directly from the boat virtually anywhere and eliminates bulky equipment. To accommodate a passenger looking to go night diving there would be underwater lights installed as well.
This tender would not only offer passengers the option of numerous water sports, but because it is a RIB, it would be capable of handling conditions that other tenders may not be able to.
